Fragments of Humanity. Archaeology in Québec is the first major exhibition dedicated entirely to Québec archaeology. Numerous significant pieces will be featured, celebrating 50 years of archaeological discovery in Québec.
Some of our exhibitions go on to entertain and fascinate visitors even after their time at Pointe-à-Callière. We offer other museums in Quebec, elsewhere in Canada and abroad a variety of high-quality travelling exhibitions:
At one time the Northern Iroquoian language groups comprised about 120,000 people in some 25 nations, spread out over 230,000 km2 – an area the size of Great Britain – stretching along both sides of the St. Lawrence River, east of the Great Lakes and down into present-day northern New York State. These Iroquoians were essentially horticulturists, growing mainly maize, or corn.
